This is my first trip report and I anticipate it will be a long one.
Spent 7 days in orlando. stayed at a place called Westgate Vacation Villas, just south of Disney. Beautiful place, I recommend it to anyone. Day One: Islands of Adventure
Perfect weather, very light crowds. As soon as you enter this perfect you know you are in no park like you have ever been before. The atmosphere they create on each of the islands is awesome. The use of themeing and music is second best to no one. Beautifully landscaped too. The port of entry is a great entry way to the entire park and I love the sign the says "Let Your Journey Begin"
We first went to Marvel Super Hero Islands and rode Hulk first. Great ride. I love the beginning even if you know what is going to happen it is still quite a surprise. four inversion before you know it. this coaster is really twisted around it self but I barely noticed it when I was riding. the vertical loops are huge. Rode again at end of day-much prefer an evening ride. rode Storm force Accelatron next. cool spinning ride. you control your cars rate of spinning. you can really get it going fast. Spiderman was next. Wow. enough can't be said about this ride. I had heard so many great things but was expecting a let down. I just couldn't imagine that they could pull it off seamlessly. well they did and then some. the second time we rode I ignored the ride itself and tried to figure how it works-couldn't find anything. loses a little on repeat rides but this is the future of theme park rides.
Toon lagoon was next. rode both of the water rides, Dudley do right and Popeye. both were awesome rides- in fact Dudley dio-right was the biggest surprise of the trip. very exciting ride, great drops and that last drop scared the heck out of me. popeye was also very good-some of those falls you go down make it look like you are going to flip over especially the one right after the second lift hill. you will get搀爀攀渀挀栀攀搀 漀渀 戀漀琀栀 漀昀 琀栀攀猀攀 爀椀搀攀猀⸀ 琀栀攀 琀栀攀洀椀渀最 椀渀 琀栀椀猀 猀攀挀琀椀漀渀 眀愀猀 最爀攀愀琀ⴀ䤀 氀漀瘀攀搀 愀氀氀 漀昀 琀栀攀 琀栀漀甀最栀 戀甀戀戀氀攀猀 攀瘀攀爀礀眀栀攀爀攀⸀ 琀栀攀 搀愀最眀漀漀搀 猀愀渀搀眀椀挀栀 爀攀猀琀愀甀爀愀渀琀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀樀甀爀愀猀猀椀挀 瀀愀爀欀 眀愀猀 渀攀砀琀㨀 瘀攀爀礀 最漀漀搀 琀栀攀洀攀椀渀最Ⰰ 洀漀猀琀 猀甀戀琀氀攀 漀昀 愀氀氀 琀栀攀 猀攀挀琀椀漀渀猀⸀ 挀栀攀挀欀 漀甀琀 琀栀攀 昀漀猀猀椀氀猀 椀渀 琀栀攀 猀椀搀攀眀愀氀欀猀⸀ 渀漀琀 愀 氀漀琀 漀昀 爀椀搀攀猀 戀甀琀 琀栀攀 刀椀瘀攀爀 愀搀瘀攀渀琀甀爀攀 椀猀 瀀爀攀琀琀礀 昀甀渀 愀渀搀 礀漀甀 搀漀渀✀琀 最攀琀 琀漀漀 眀攀琀Ⰰ 最爀攀愀琀 攀昀昀攀挀琀猀 琀漀漀⸀ 䄀氀猀漀Ⰰ 琀愀欀攀 愀 昀攀眀 洀椀渀甀琀攀猀 愀渀搀 眀愀渀搀攀爀 琀栀爀漀甀最栀 䌀愀洀瀀 䨀甀爀愀猀猀椀挀⸀ 䤀 氀漀瘀攀 琀栀攀猀攀 愀爀攀愀猀 椀渀 瀀愀爀欀猀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀吀栀攀 䰀漀猀琀 挀漀渀琀椀渀攀渀琀㨀 爀漀搀攀 琀栀攀 䘀氀礀椀渀最 甀渀椀挀漀爀渀ⴀ攀愀猀椀氀礀 琀栀攀 爀漀甀最栀攀猀琀 爀椀搀攀 漀昀 琀栀攀 眀栀漀氀攀 琀爀椀瀀⸀ 眀漀甀氀搀渀✀琀 戀攀 栀愀氀昀 戀愀搀 椀昀 椀琀 眀攀爀攀 琀眀椀挀攀 愀猀 氀漀渀最⸀ 渀攀砀琀 眀攀 眀攀渀琀 漀渀 䐀甀攀氀椀渀最 搀爀愀最漀渀猀⸀ 爀漀搀攀 䤀挀攀 昀椀爀猀琀⸀ 夀伀唀 䴀唀匀吀 刀䤀䐀䔀 䄀吀 䰀䔀䄀匀吀 伀一䔀 伀䘀 吀䠀䔀匀䔀 䤀一 吀䠀䔀 䘀刀伀一吀 匀䔀䄀吀ⴀ䤀吀 䤀匀 圀伀刀吀䠀 吀䠀䔀 圀䄀䤀吀⸀ 琀栀攀 猀攀渀猀愀琀椀漀渀 漀昀 愀氀洀漀猀琀 挀爀愀猀栀椀渀最 椀猀 最爀攀愀琀 愀渀搀 礀漀甀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 氀漀猀攀 椀琀 椀渀 琀栀攀 戀愀挀欀 猀攀愀琀猀⸀ 䤀 瀀爀攀昀攀爀爀攀搀 䤀挀攀 漀瘀攀爀 䘀椀爀攀⸀ 䤀 搀漀渀✀琀 眀愀渀琀 琀漀 爀甀椀渀 琀栀攀 猀甀爀瀀爀椀猀攀猀 椀渀 琀栀椀猀 爀椀搀攀Ⰰ 樀甀猀琀 最攀琀 琀栀攀爀攀 愀渀搀 爀椀搀攀 椀琀⸀ 愀氀猀漀 眀攀渀琀 愀渀搀 猀愀眀 倀漀猀攀椀搀漀渀✀猀 䘀甀爀礀ⴀ搀椀搀渀✀琀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 挀愀爀攀 昀漀爀 琀栀椀猀 瘀攀爀礀 洀甀挀栀⸀ 椀琀 琀栀漀甀最栀琀 椀琀 眀愀猀 愀 氀漀琀 洀漀爀攀 椀渀琀攀渀猀攀 琀栀愀渀 椀琀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 眀愀猀⸀ 琀栀攀 攀昀昀攀挀琀猀 眀攀爀攀 最漀漀搀Ⰰ 攀猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀氀礀 琀栀攀 洀愀最椀挀愀氀氀礀 愀瀀瀀攀愀爀椀渀最 眀愀氀氀 愀琀 琀栀攀 攀渀搀⸀ 眀漀爀琀栀礀 漀昀 愀 猀栀漀爀琀 眀愀椀琀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀渀攀砀琀 眀愀猀 匀攀甀猀猀 氀愀渀搀椀渀最⸀ 最爀攀愀琀 猀攀挀琀椀漀渀⸀ 戀攀猀琀 琀栀攀洀攀椀渀最 漀昀 琀栀攀 搀愀礀⸀ 猀漀 挀漀氀漀爀昀甀氀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀 洀甀猀椀挀 挀愀渀✀琀 栀攀氀瀀 戀甀琀 洀愀欀攀 礀漀甀 猀欀椀瀀⸀ 眀攀 愀挀琀甀愀氀氀礀 搀攀挀椀搀攀搀 琀栀愀琀 眀栀攀渀 眀攀 眀攀爀攀 椀渀 琀栀椀猀 猀攀挀琀椀漀渀Ⰰ 眀攀 眀漀甀氀搀 猀瀀攀愀欀 渀漀琀栀椀渀最 戀甀琀 爀栀礀洀攀猀⸀ 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀猀 愀爀攀 瘀攀爀礀 琀愀洀攀 戀甀琀 琀栀攀礀 愀爀攀 昀甀渀⸀ 琀栀攀 搀爀椀瘀攀 琀栀爀漀甀最栀 瘀攀爀猀椀漀渀 漀昀 䌀愀琀ⴀ椀渀ⴀ琀栀攀ⴀ䠀愀琀 椀猀 愀 氀漀琀 漀昀 昀甀渀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䤀渀 最攀渀攀爀愀氀 䤀伀䄀 眀愀猀 最爀攀愀琀⸀ 琀栀攀 氀椀渀攀猀 眀攀爀攀 猀栀漀爀琀Ⰰ 琀栀攀 昀漀漀搀 眀愀猀 漀欀愀礀Ⰰ 琀栀攀 洀甀猀椀挀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀洀攀椀渀最 愀爀攀 琀漀瀀 渀漀琀挀栀 愀渀搀 琀栀攀礀 愀搀搀 猀漀 洀甀挀栀 琀漀 琀栀攀 瀀愀爀欀⸀ 愀氀氀 漀昀 琀栀攀 挀甀攀 氀椀渀攀猀 愀爀攀 攀砀琀爀攀洀攀氀礀 椀渀琀爀椀挀愀琀攀 愀渀搀 瘀攀爀礀 椀渀琀攀爀攀猀琀椀渀最⸀ 琀栀攀礀 搀漀 渀攀攀搀 琀漀 琀甀爀渀 搀漀眀渀 琀栀攀 愀椀爀 挀漀渀搀椀琀椀漀渀椀渀最 愀 氀椀琀琀氀攀 琀栀漀甀最栀⸀ 琀栀椀猀 瀀愀爀欀 眀椀氀氀 戀攀 漀渀 洀礀 椀渀琀椀渀攀爀愀爀礀 昀漀爀 攀瘀攀爀礀 琀爀椀瀀 琀漀 漀爀氀愀渀搀漀⸀ 挀愀渀✀琀 眀愀椀琀 琀漀 猀攀攀 眀栀愀琀 琀栀攀礀 愀搀搀 渀攀砀琀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀䐀愀礀 吀眀漀㨀 䴀愀最椀挀 䬀椀渀最搀漀洀 㰀戀爀㸀圀漀眀 眀愀猀 琀栀椀猀 瀀愀爀欀 挀爀漀眀搀攀搀Ⰰ 攀猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀氀礀 昀漀爀 渀漀瘀攀洀戀攀爀⸀ 愀氀洀漀猀琀 愀渀 栀漀甀爀 眀愀椀琀 昀漀爀 匀瀀氀愀猀栀 䴀漀甀渀琀愀椀渀⸀ 琀栀椀猀 眀愀猀 樀ust two days after that guy jumped from the car. rode everything in the park. still love space mountain. Alien Encounter wasn't as great as I expected. peter pan is one of the best kids rides-awesome scenery.
day three: MGM
had a lot of fun here. rode everything and saw almost every show. really enjoyed Tower of terror (five drops, 2 short, 2 medium, 1 long), rock and roller coaster was also very cool, good themeing, great launch, a little too short though with a few dead spots during the ride.
day four: EPCOT/Animal kingdom
I really enjoy EPCOT, it is alwaya very relaxing day. good food, great scenery. took part of the day to visit animal kingdom. this park is going to be very cool but is has a long way to go. the paths need to be widened to ease the crowds a little, way too much construction but I guess that is how they improve the park. Dinosaus was okay-too much of the ride was in complete darkness. disappointing after riding spiderman. the safari tour was great-they did a great job of recreating the african savana. it's tough to a bug was a lot of fun too. scared the heck out of a lot of little kids (those spiders from the ceiling) and the bugs under you butt was a great effect.
returned to EPCOT in the evening to watch the big parade (Tapestry of Nations) and the final show (Reflections of Earth) both were truly spectacular. disney sure knows how to be subtle (sarcasm)
Had a great trip. can't wait to go back so I can visit Universal Studios and BGT.
